JULY 3— BREAKFAST, 65c— 7:30 to 8:30 

Venetian Room, Hotel Oakland 

Speaker: HOMER BUCKLEY, Assistant City 

Attorney 

Subject: "Legal Myths" 

This talk is a rollicking, full-of-fun, flow of words 

that will start you off on the day the right way. 48 

members turned out for breakfast a month ago and 

voted the idea a huge success. Let's make it at 

least 60 to hear Faye's husband!

JULY 17— LUNCHEON, $1.00—12:15

American Red Cross. 

Subject: "Women's Part in National Defense" 

Chairman: Dee Ewart 
Mrs. Diehl is in a position to give us much val- 
uable information — both informative and authentic. 
A timely subject; a charming woman to present it; 
and a meeting you should definitely plan to attend. 
JULY 24— INFORMAL DESSERT, 25c— 7:30 
At the home of Faye Buckley, 863 Vermont St., 
Oakland. 

After-convention Rally. 

This will be one of those more "intimate" meet-

come closer to our club problems. Let's all be con- 
cerned about our club affairs, and at the same time 
enjoy the hospitality of one of our most gracious 
members.

Please contact Miss Dougherty immediately for fur- 
ther information at 106 Ray Bldg., phone TEm-

LAST CALL 
There is still time to make a last minute decision 
to attend the big National Convention in Los An- 
geles, July 6-11. Special round trip railroad fares 
are available. No more rooms at the Ambassador, 
but plenty at nearby hotels at moderate rates. Res- 
ervation at any of the hotels may be made direct 
with the Ambassador. This is the chance of a life- 
time to attend a National Convention almost at our 
front door, and incidentally to show California hos- 
pitality to our visiting sisters. All aboard ! 

SPECIAL B. P. W. C. STAMP CACHET 

The postmaster of Los Angeles announces that 
during the Biennial, a commemorative cachet will be 

9 impressed on the envelopes of mail presented with

In preparing this mail it is advisable to use en-

and address should be written as far to the right as 
possible, leaving ample space at the left for the 
cachet. The required postage should be affixed to 
each envelope and the envelope sealed. The postage 
of the outside envelope addressed to the Postmaster 
should also be fully prepaid. 

Arrangements will also be made to have the 
cachet impressed on letters presented at the Post 
Office station in the Ambassador Hotel during the 
convention.

SEPT. 25— BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR1 

EVERYONE, Everyone, Everyone in the Oakland 
B. P. W. C. must participate in the big Country 
Fair to make it a success. If you sew, you can make 
things to sell; if you cook, you can help with the 
dinner; if you have an exhibitable hobby, you can 
display it; if you have "White Elephants" . . . and 
who hasn't? . . . you can get rid of them. Books, 
pictures, bricabrac, kitchen utensils, costume jewelry, 
etc. And if you want to have fun, and at the same 
time add a few nickels to the coffers of your club 
for the purpose of establishing a fund to send dele- 
gates to conventions, then count yourself present on 
September 25.

wool skirts for little six-year-old girls in war-swept 
countries. Others do the basting. Some knit. Jennie

B. P. W. C. NOTES 

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO BY-LAWS 
Change Article X to read as follows: 

Loan Fund. The money in the Florence King 
Educational Loan Fund shall be used only in 
connection with educational loans and scholar- 
ships. 

Change present Articles X and Articles XI to 
Articles XI and XII, respectively. 

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED 

Since August 1 Jennie Selleck, our Red Cross 
chairman, announces that our club has turned in 185 
garments to the Red Cross. This represents work 
done by only about 15 members of the club, with 
the major portion of it falling to the hands of Jen- 
nie, who both supervises and runs the sewing ma- 
chine long hours when the rest of us aren't there to 
even keep her company. Your help is needed, too. 
If you can't baste, surely you can pull out bastings! 
There is a job for everyone and the Red Cross 
needs every garment we can turn out. 

SUNDAY, JANUARY 18— A BIG DAY 

Because of war conditions, Bernice Brenner, Bay 
District president, has asked us to crowd our Bay 
District Conference into one day. We are the host- 
ess club; let's turn out 100 per cent. Full details of 
the program will be given to you later. In the 
meantime SAVE THE DAY. 

PALS WANTED 1 
Everyone should have a Pal this year. Just sign 
the enclosed postcard and drop it in the mailbox. 
Vou will be informed who your pal is within a very 
short time.

Some members may have been waiting to treat

FINE COOPERATION 



DeNeale Morgan, our honorary member that re- 
sides in Carmel-by-the-Sea, sent us ten most attractive 
hand-painted cards appropriate for Easter or any 
other occasion, to be sold for 50c each, the proceed: 
to go in with the B. P. W. C. contribution to one of 
the war agencies. DeNeale spent many hours paint- 
ing the beautiful little scenes on the cards and mount- 
ing them so attractively, but the fact that they were 
all sold within the fewest of minutes contributes tc 
her compensation, we are sure. Many, many thanks.

MORE WAR BONDS 

were purchased last month, according to a re- 
port made by Bird Wilson at the April business 
meeting. Because there is no demand for stu- 
dent loans, $600 of that money was invested in 
War Bonds. This makes a total of $800 for the 
club. 

THE TREASURER'S REPORT 

as presented by Edith Knott at the same meeting, 
was something you really should have heard. If 
you are not familiar with the financial status of 
your club, we suggest that you ask Edith to show 
you the report. 

MARCELLA GRAHAM . . . 

upon completion of 28 years' service for the 
City of Oakland was retired as of May 1st. Our 
best wishes, Marcella, for years of enjoyable 
leisure and continued interest in the club. 

CAN YOU MATCH THIS? 

Winifred Brightman has an all-around 100 per 
cent attendance for the year! She has attended 
every meeting of the club . . . breakfasts, lunch- 
eons, dinners, teas and informals . . .she has 
been to every Board meeting, and attended the 
State Convention and Bay District Conferences! 
That's wonderful, Win, and certainly gives us 
all something to strive to do likewise this com- 
ing year. 

NEW ROSTER JUST OUT 

Our new roster is just off the press and con- 
tains the Constitution and By-Laws, as well as 
names, addresses and phone numbers of all the 
members. The price is 25c per copy. Also con- 
tains newly-named chairmen for the coming 
year.

Sunday, April 19. They went on the bus . . . 
Eunice, Helen, Iva Havlin, Winifred Brightman

JTENTION, THE PAL OF 

Georgia Maiden. She says, "Many thanks for 
the beautiful card and the two dozen daffodils 
which I found at my door Sunday, February 15, 
both of which gave me great happiness. . . and 
"My sincere thanks for the box of six dainty 
sachets which you sent me for Easter. It is all 
very mysterious and delightful." 

ARY ORAL HILL

tiful flowering plant" she sent at Easter. Oral is 
enjoying it very much. 

iNEALE MORGAN'S $10.00 

which was raised by sale of 20 little hand- 
painted cards for use in war work, was used to 
purchase 40 new paper-covered novels for the 
library at Hospitality House for Service Men. 
Mary Barmby, who is on the Library Commit- 
tee for Hospitality House, selected the books 
and reports that they are meeting with popular- 
ity.

In fact the whole month's program was excep-

We are definitely proud to present to you 
this outstanding speaker of high acclaim — a 
man who comes from Punjab, India, and was 
a director of the Sikh program for the abol- 
ition of the caste system. His talk will in- 
clude up-to-the-minute information of poli- 
tical, social and economic problems, as well 
as India's vital part in this war. 

This is a program men will enjoy as well as 
women. 



B. P. W. C. NOTES 

/ WAR TIME PROJECT 

There is an urgent need for thousands of model 
airplanes to be used in military and civilian 
aeronautical observation classes. A class has 
been organized for B. P. W. C. members which 
meets every Monday evening in the basement of 
the Park Boulevard Recreational Building on 
the corner of Newton and Park Blvd. from 7 
to 10 p. m. Three capable instructors are in 
charge and the progress already made by many 



of the members is remarkable and encouraging. 
It's fun, too, so why not don a pair of slacks 
and get busy! See you next Monday.

FINANCIAL NOTE 

Our treasurer, Edith Knott, reminds us that 
dues for this current quarter must be in by Au- 
gust 15th because this is the month that dues 
must be paid to the National and State Feder- 
ations. There will be a penalty of 25c imposed 
by the Federation for each delinquent member. 

VACATIONS 

We hear rumors of many of our members going 
and coming on vacations. Don't know just who 
the list includes — but anyway, if you've been 
away, we hope you had a swell time; and if 
you're going, please cast a sympathetic diought 
back home to the little gal still pounding the 
typewriter. ' 

SICK 

We understand Jane Patterson is quite ill, 
with possibly an operation in the offing. We 
hope by the time this is printed she will be 
well on the way to recovery. 
Peggy Keith has been quite ill, but is now 
able to be up and around her home. A card 
from any member will be greatly appreciated. 

BIRD WILSON 

is working in San Francisco so the Club Office 
will not be open Wednesday afternoons during 
August. 

"ABOVE AVERAGE" 

That's what the man said when we turned in 
our first batch of model airplanes to the Junior 
Chamber of Commerce! It made us feel ter- 
ribly proud because we know as time goes on, 
we're going to do better 'n better. Just a mat- 
ter of getting the hang of the thing. 
Why don'tdia come and join us, huh? At first 
it all may seem very bewildering — then all of a 
sudden you get the feel of it, and production 
speeds up. Quite fascinating work, and ihe 
government needs the planes badly.

Piedmont Hotel, but at present is doing a bit of 
travelling. As soon as she returns, you will 
have the pleasure of meeting her. 

FOUNDI 

Three pairs of gloves, turned in after various 
meetings, are up in the club office waiting for 
owners to claim them. 

WAACS 

Official literature giving complete information 
pertaining to the Women's Army Auxiliary 
Corps, is available at the office, or call Helen 
Augsburg. Also we will be glad to send in the 
names of any girls who are interested in receiv- 
ing applications to join. 

Incidentally we had a nice letter from Lieut. 
Lyle of the recruiting office in San Francisco 
thanking us for the opportunity of attending 
our meeting July 23. He said: "1 thoroughly 
enjoyed every phase of the meeting and espec- 
ially at having an opportunity of meeting so 
many of your members. We appreciate, a great 
deal, the help which your organization has given 
us in the past and we are hopeful that through 
your membership, you will be able to submit 
names or at least give out information to pros- 
pective auxiliary members." 



FINANCIAL NOTE 

Our treasurer, Edidi Knott, reminds us that 
dues for this current quarter must be in by Au- 
gust 15th because this is the month that dues 
must be paid to the National and State Feder- 
ations. There will be a penalty of 25c imposed 
by the Federation for each delinquent member. 

VACATIONS 

We hear rumors of many of our members going 
and coming on vacations. Don't know just who 
the list includes — but anyway, if you've been 
away, we hope you had a swell time; and if 
you're going, please cast a sympathetic thought 
back home to the little gal still pounding the 
typewriter. 

SICK 

We understand Jane Patterson is quite ill, 
with possibly an operation in the offing. We 
hope by the time this is printed she will be 
well on the way to recovery. 
Peggy Keith has been quite ill, but is now 
able to be up and around her home. A card 
from any member will be greatly appreciated. 

BIRD WILSON 

is working in San Francisco so the Club Office 
will not be open Wednesday afternoons during 
August. 

"ABOVE AVERAGE" 

That's what the man said when we turned in 
our first batch of model airplanes to the Junior 
Chamber of Commerce ! It made us feel ter- 
ribly proud because we know as time goes on, 
we're going to do better 'n better. Just a mat- 
ter of getting the hang of the thing. 
Why don'tcha come and join us, huh? At first 
it all may seem very bewildering — then all of a 
sudden you get the feel of it, and production 
speeds up. Quite fascinating work, and die 
government needs the planes badly.

"TO MY SECRET PAL 

My sincere thanks for the beautiful butterfly pin 
which you sent me for my July birthday. In 
response to your card of August 10th will reply 
that I like and can use the pin. It is on the 
left pocket of my sport suit right over my heart. 
I love the picture of the owl. Love and thanks. 
Georgia Maiden." 

TO THE PAL OF IVA HAVLIN 

Apparently you hit the jack pot when you sent 
her that orchid for her birthday ! It's the first 
orchid she has ever had, and judging from her 
enthusiasm when she asked us to please thank 
her Pal, she liked it tremendously. 

WE WON A PRIZEI 

Did you hear Sam Hayes' broadcast Monday 
morning, August 3rd? He awarded our club 
the weekly Pacific Coast prize for war activity 
achievement based on our Red Cross work, 
model airplanes and purchase of War Bonds. 
The award is a case of Wheaties, and when it 
arrives each individual package will be raffled 
at one of our regular meetings to raise more 
money for the War effort.

UANY THANKS 

to Dora Cooley and her sisters who again proved

B. P. W. C. NOTES 

OUR UNITED NATIONS DINNER 

Wasn't it a swell party? Money is still coming 
in so we don't know yet how much was cleared 
for the War Chest, Hospitality House and Red 
Cross kits, but we will let you know just as 
soon as Edith is able to complete the figures. 

The Board wishes to thank each and everyone 
of you for the parts you played in making the 
evening such a huge success. All the fine con- 
tributions of assistance and money and food, and 
the tremendous crowd you turned out repre- 
sented a spirit of cooperation and club fellow- 
ship that will never be forgotten. It may be a 
long time before conditions will permit us to 
give another such event, and so we doubly 
cherish the memory of a happy evening. 

DeNEALE MORGAN 

was in town for the party and brought with her 
a goodly number of her paintings of Carmel 
scenes and other familiar subjects. Most gra- 
ciously DeNeale is offering 10 per cent of the 
sales prices on any of her pictures which our 
club members might be instrumental in selling, 
to the club war fund. When she returns home 
she will leave some of the pictures with us. At 
present they may be seen at Marcella Graham's. 
Phone HU. 6553. The address is 4130 Gilbert 
Street. Remember these pictures make lovely, 
lasting gifts. 

DEAR PAL: 

Many, many thanks for my birthday remem- 
brance which has found a prominent place in 
the midst of my dog collection. I am ar.xious 



to know who you are so I can thank you in 
person, but in the meantime this must suffice. 

And to the many members who sent me cards 
and good wishes, may I also say thank you.

B. P. W. C. NOTES 

IATION FEE WAVED 

Grace Morton, membership chairman, sent you a 
letter telling you of the board action to suspend 
the initiation fee of $15.00 for the balance of 
the administration, so that war work may be 
stepped up to a maximum. There is so very 
much to do, and the greater the "woman-power," 
the more we can accomplish. We have much 
to offer the business woman of today; you will 
be doing a great kindness to whomsoever you 
give an application blank. 

M THE F & F (Facts and Figures) DEPT. 
Over $250 was netted from our Allied Nations 
Dinner on September 24th . . . Two additional 
$100 denomination War Bonds were purchased 
last month . . . Your club donated $50 to the 
Metropolitan Oakland War Chest (100 per cent 
more than we were asked for!) . . . $50 was 
given to the Red Cross to buy the contents for 
50 kits for Service Men. The bags were made 
under the supervision of Elsie Beaumont in her 
sewing classes. 

H KNOTT 

is working as a volunteer hostess at the Seventh 
Street Lounge every Sunday morning. 

KIIE SELLECK 

is making very beautiful Red Cross First Aid 
kits to be carried in automobiles for emergen- 
cies. The cost is $1.50 and 10 per cent goes 
into the club War Fund. 



NOTE FROM DR. LILLIAN SHIELDS 

Many thanks for the flowers and card, 
proving slowly. 



Am im- 



-._.+ 



MAGAZINES NEEDED 

Your old copies of the Saturday Evening Post, 
Colliers, Cosmopolitan, Esquire and New Yorker 
are greatly needed by those who are making 
U. S. O. Scrap Books for the men in service. 
Get in touch with Helen Augsburg if you have 
magazines you can spare. 

BETWEEN NOW AND CHRISTMAS 

you may want to buy one of DeNeale Morgan's 
very lovely water color pictures. A portfolio 
of selections is in the Club office for you to see. 
The prices are from $5.00 to $10.00 and 10 
per cent goes into the club War Fund.

LETTER OF THANKS 

From the Corresponding Secretary of Hospitality 
House comes this note: 

"Such a grand gift to the comforts of our Boys 
as the load of logs for the fire place at Hospi- 
tality House. Many of our guests would voice 
their appreciation did they know. So may I ex- 
press to you, for them and all interested in their 
comforts, deep appreciation and thanks for the 
wonderful gift." 

GAMES FOR THE LOUNSE 

Winifred Brightman displayed a beautiful as- 
sortment of games picked out for the service 
men at the Seventh street Lounge. We are 
mighty proud that we can continue to add to the 
happiness of so many. 

U. S. O. SCRAP BOOKS 

To date members of our club and their friends 
have taken close to 200 books. Many have been 
completed and turned in; others are in the proc- 
ess. All those who are working on them agree 
that it is a very pleasant as well as profitable 
pastime. 



RECIPE FOR SCRAP BOOK PASTE

2 tbsp. powdered alum 

Mix these ingredients thoroughly. Add 1 cup 
cold water and stir until smooth. Then add an-

B. P. W. C. NOTES 



SN UP FOR YOUR 1943 PALI 

These are days when we are doing everything 
we possibly can to help the men and women in 
uniform for Uncle Sam. But that doesn't mean 
that a little time can't be taken out now and 
again throughout the year to do some little 
thing for a member of your own club. A Pal 
is fun. Send a card now and then or a remem- 
brance on a special occasion, and you will find 
you are spreading happiness. 

Sign your name on the enclosed post card and 
mail it today. You will be assigned a Pal in a 
very few days. 

:rap books 

continue to be important war business. The de- 
mand for them is greater and greater — particu- 
larly from members of the Oakland B. P. W. C. 
because they are doing such beautiful work. 
Please keep it up. 

And if you know the addresses of any boys or 
nurses in the service overseas, who would like 
to receive Scrap Books to read, please turn their 
names in to Helen Augsburg. She will person- 
ally attend to the mailing of them. 



SUZANNE CHALMERS 

We were unhappy to learn that Suzanne was 
very ill over the holidays with shingles. But

NURSES FROM OAK KNOLL ENTERTAINED 

An invitation extended to the nurses at Oak

Review was accepted by seven of the nurses. 
They were extremely appreciative and we sin- 
cerely hope they will always feel free to attend 
any of our meetings. They are here from all 
over the country and doing a wonderful job for 
the boys. 

HOW ABOUT RED CROSS SEWING? 

There is demand for much sewing to be done. 
How about it? Shall we organize a weekly

questionnaire. It is vitally important, so please 
do it today — even if you can fill in only one 
blank. If we can't have a complete picture, 
there is no need to have any — so will you please 
do it now? If by any chance you have lost your 
questionnaire, phone Helen Augsburg. TEmple- 
bar 2885, and she will mail you another. 

MLENTINE'S DAY— FEBRUARY 14th 
Remember your Pal ! 

MOTHER OPPORTUNITY 

for our Club to show its patriotism, and cer- 
tainly the record has been of the finest. 

Welders and other workers are desperately need- 
ed so that men can be released for farm work in 
food production. Southern California shows 47% 
women in work of this kind, while we have less 
than 10% ! Let's rally to the cause and see how 
many of our neighbors, friends, relatives and 
associates we can get to help us. 

Training at Central Trades School. Pay 95c per 
hour while in school; can earn 95c to $1.25 per 
hour thereafter. 

Hours: 7:00 to 3:30 

3 : 30 to 1 1 : 30— Additional 1 % 

11:30 to 7:00— Additional 15% 

Many advantages such as Hospital Care and 
Nurseries for children. For further informa- 
tion, talk with Grace Morton, TEmplebar 0176. 



KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK 

Thousands of U. S. O. Scrap Books are still 
needed ! The quota will never be completed un- 
til the war is over. Keep pasting so the boys 
overseas may keep reading! 

NURSES FROM OAK KNOLL ENTERTAINED 

An invitation extended to the nurses at Oak 
Knoll Hospital Base to attend our January Book 
Review was accepted by seven of the nurses. 
They were extremely appreciative and we sin- 
cerely hope they will always feel free to attend 
any of our meetings. They are here from all 
over the country and doing a wonderful job for 
the boys. 

HOW ABOUT RED CROSS SEWING? 

There is demand for much sewing to be done. 
How about it? Shall we organize a weekly 
class again ?

fun ... the kind of party where we all get 
better acquainted. 
Chairman: Faye Buckley 



B. P. W. C. NOTES 

ND BY NOW OF COURSE YOU KNOW . . . 
That the army took over the Hotel Oakland and 
we had to move out in a hurry. We were loath 
to leave the place where we had been so happy 
and so comfortably situated. Fortunately, how- 
ever, Faye Buckley was able to come to the rescue 
and find us a new home in spite of the fact it 
was Washington's birthday and a holiday . . . 
and now we're practically settled. The real 
house-warming is going to be March 25th, as 
you will see by the calendar of events; so set 
that evening aside. 

HE PARTY AT DORA COOLEY'S 

was truly one of the nicest affairs we have ever 
had. It is certaily wonderful of Dora to open 
her home to us, and we want her to know how 
very much we appreciate it. 

>J ORCHID TO THE POST ENQUIRER 

Did you see the pictures they took at the party 
at Dora's? They appeared in the February 25th 
issue . . . three of them . . . showing Eunice, 
Winifred Brightman and Helen O'Neill working 
on U. S. O. Scrap Books; Jennie Selleck, Elsie 
Beaumont and Ora Mae Griggs doing Red Cross 
sewing; and Dora serving refreshments to new 
members Ellen Church, Anna Cushing and Neva 
Brodrick. Thank you, Post Enquirer. 

TTERS TO PALS . . . 

Dear Pal: Mere words are futile to express my 
thanks for the exquisite valentine you so loving- 
ly sent me. It brought great joy to me as well 



as the other members of the family. My heart- 
felt thanks to you. — Winifred Brightman. 

Dear Pal: Thanks so much for the lovely hand- 
kerchief and birthday greetings. It is always so 
nice to be remembered and it adds a little more 
"spice" to try and guess from whom it came. —

FRANCES PELLICIER. 

THURSDAY, MAY 13— LUNCHEON 65c— 12:15 no

THURSDAY, MAY 27— LUNCHEON 65c— 12:15 noon

Speaker: None other than JOHN K. CHAPEL. 

He will speak on rhe war situation as it is at 
the moment. Mr. Chapel was born in Russia 
in the aristocracy. He is a world traveler, lec- 
turer and author; he is the news commentator 
for KROW; he is such a dynamic speaker that 
the Presidenr of the Ad Club after hearing him 
a few weeks ago, said "This has been the fin- 
est talk that has ever been my privilege to 
hear." 






PROGRAM CHAIRMAN— Grace Morton 



B. P. W. C. NOTES 



NEW DRAPERIES ARE A COMIN' 

Under the able help and guidance of Elsie 
Beaumont and Florence Brown, our Club Rooms 
will soon have beautiful new draperies. And 
we mean beautiful. Elsie is doing all the cut- 
ting, etc., but has asked if she might borrow 
the Red Cross workers Monday evening, the 
10th, to do some of the hand sewing. Supper 
in the way of a Duchess Boxed Lunch will be 
on hand that evening at 6 o'clock for the first 
15 members to arrive. If you can't come at 
6, come at 7! 

ENCLOSED WITH THIS HERALD 

are several mimeographed sheets which need 
your immediate attention. They are self ex- 
planatory, but please read and attend to them 
as soon as possible. 

TO MY PAL 

Many thanks for the lovely birthday and Easter 
remembrance. Enjoyed the book so much. To 
my other dear friends, thanks for birthday and 
Easter cards; your loving thoughts were greatly 
appreciated. 

Winifred

To dale, Elsie Beaumont and the Red Cross

draperies, and expect to have them all finished 
in time for this party. Also we give a big hand 
to Jennie Selleck and her retired members com- 
mittee for planning, preparing and serving of 
the meals in our Club Rooms. 

Speaking of new members, did you know that 
our Club now has a membership totaling 110? 
Something to celebrate, methinks. 



B. P. W. C. NOTES 

VELTY JEWELRY WANTED 
You have no doubt read about the "Baubles for 
Buddies" campaign. The natives in Africa and 
the South Seas are very fond of our glittering 
jewelry, and will trade food, haul supplies, dig 
fox holes and carry our wounded for miles for 
some little trinket. We have a box in the Club 
Office in which you can drop your contribution. 
Every piece helps, so if you have some novelty 
you are no longer wearing, may we have it? 

t OUR CLUB ROOMS 

Have you any card tables to donate? Our 
"lunch room" needs additional tables, so any 
contribution will be gratefully received. 

REMEMBER the questionnaire sent out by the 
National Federation in May? 48 of our group 
answered it, showing a total of $33,036.75 
worth of War Bonds purchased this past year. 
The Club has purchased $2,100.00 worth so 
Oakland B. P. W. C. made a very nice showing 
individually and as a group. 

W ABOUT HELPING A SAL? 

"Ye Editor" is mighty green at this job, and 
needs news items and suggestions from all of 
you. So call me at home, OL 8795 or at the 
office, GL 9000 Ext. 271 at any time, and pass 



along your information, please. Or mail items 
to Anna Lignell, 22 Monte Ave., Piedmont, (my 
new address after June 1 ) . 

HAVE YOU sent in the information for the

B. P. W. C. NOTES 

Our Club recently purchased a Coca Cola Dis- 
penser for the Cruiser Oakland, for the pleas- 
ure of the boys on board ship. The Navy in- 
formed our President that this was an item the 
boys would appreciate most when out at sea. 

HAZEL STEEN deserves particular mention for 
all her work in obtaining information relative 
to crop harvesting this fall. Mimeographed 
notes will be available to all interested. 

Our housewarming party was a big success with 
76 present. It also brought us a fine new mem- 
ber, Major Ruth McCann of the Salvation Army, 
who joined our group then and there. 

IOULD IT BE VERSE, 
PERSONALITIES IN THE NEWS 

When BIRD WILSON returns, she will not be 

pale. 
She is vacationing, in old Sunnyvale. 
Apricots! beware 
While Bird is there. 

And GRACE LYON is not so slow — 
She is relaxing, at Lake Tahoe. 

Some other members may also be playing 
While the rest of us work like — 
Best not be saying. 

Wedding bells have gayly chimed 
For a member sweet and kind. 
FREDA SMITH, now MRS. SNYDER 
Has a husband true beside her. 
May happiness forever reign 
Make their home a real domain.

A MOTORIST'S PRAYER 

Grant me a steady hand and a watchful eye 
That no man shall be hurt when I pass by. 
Thou gavest life, and I pray no act of mine, 
May take away or mar that gift of Thine. 
Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear me company 
From evils of fire and all calamity. 
Teach me to use my car for others' need 
Nor miss through love of speed 
The beauties of Thy world; that thus I may 
With joy and courtesy go on my way.

Your letter will be printed in full next time — it 
came after the Herald had been planned. O.K.? 

Thanks — Anna 
Dear Pal: 

I was so pleased and surprised to receive the 
most delightful book "Mama's Bank Account" 
for my birthday July 19th. I sat up very late 
reading it the day I received it. It is so humor- 
ous and original. My sincere thanks to you. 

Georgia Maiden 
Dear Mrs. Mitcheltree: 

The Sweet Sunshine Committee Card and your 
kind note are truly appreciated. Many thanks 
for your thought of me. Your description of 
the recent dinner meeting in the Club Rooms 
has inspired me to try to attend a meeting soon. 
Thanks again for your cheery card and note, and 
warmest greetings to you and the club members. 
Very sincerely, 

Mary M. Schuler

A MOTORIST'S PRAYER 

Grant me a steady hand and a watchful eye 
That no man shall be hurt when I pass by. 
Thou gavest life, and I pray no act of mine, 
May take away or mar that gift of Thine. 
Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear me company 
From evils of fire and all calamity. 
Teach me to use my car for others' need 
Nor miss through love of speed" 
The beauties of Thy world; that thus I may 
With joy and courtesy go on my way.

B. P. W. C. NOTES 

Delegates to the Bay District Conference are: 
Helen Augsberg, Winifred Brightman, Elsie 
Beaumont, Grace Morton, Alice Voisinet. 
Alternates: Eunice Kertell, May Wilkin, Mary 
Ada Boyd, Olive Cathcart, Jean Baird. 

The Red Cross sewing group which meets every 
Monday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 p. m. in the 
Club Rooms has produced a remarkable amount 
of work in the last six months. So far 50 
blouses, 50 "Handy Kits," 100 slips, 50 conva- 
lescent bags, and 1 dozen gowns have been made 
under the supervision of Elsie Beaumont. Her 
able assistants on the machines are: Eunice 
Kertell, Ora Mae Griggs, Blanche Mauerhan, 
with many others plying a needle or pulling 
jastings. 

A canning we did go, a canning we did go, 
Hi Ho the peaches O, a canning we did go ! 

20 members, tried and true, 
Took a job that was all new. 
Pitting peaches, one by one, 
Done by hand, it was some fun. 
We all worked from six ro ten, 
We were really tired by then. 
Some had blisters on their thumb, 
Others fingers just went numb. 
But They want us back again, 
When tomatoes are hauled in. 

NEXT INVESTMENT 

Now that we have our new Clubroom in at- 
tractive running order, and our Club's Red Cross 
and Hostess activities well organized, it is time 
that we were taking up that vital matter of 
membership. It was so well under way last 
term, when war demands required our concen- 
tration on a new home, it is most important 



that, if we are to profit by the interest created 
at that time, me must not only get busy but 
keep busy. 

To that end, you are now being again called 
upon, collectively and individually for 

A NEW MEMBER— PLEASE 
And this will not be the last you will hear from 
THE MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE

top programs for you ; Jennie Selleck spends 
hours shopping and preparing delectable sand- 
wich fillings to tickle the palate; Elsie Wood

Dear Pal: 

You really are a wonderful pal. Cards, lovely

When unbreakable window meets random ball, 
When dust won't gather and din's controlled 
And the attic's not hot or the basement cold

If you want to move to another place? 
Be it ever so humble will this be home — 
This un-wear-out-able plastic and chrome?

Hi!: 






:iub NEWS 

State President Ftances Marie Brey was here 
from Porterville, and made us a surprise visit 
at our meeting on October 14th. We were 
mighty happy to welcome her and hope she 
will come again soon! 

Catherine Delamothe is now home from the 
hospital. She is recovering nicely from her 
operation. 

Phyllis Amman, our secretary, has taken out a 
leave of absence to be with her husband who 
will be stationed in San Diego. We feel 
awfully happy for her . . . but awfully sorry 
for us who must get along without her. 
Helen Murray is being transferred to Sacra- 
mento. More tears. We've enjoyed having 
her with us so much. Hope she will come 
back soon. 

ETTER OF THANKS FOR U. S. O. BOOKS 

October 13, 1943 
"Dear Members: The men in our organization 
have derived such a lot of entertainment from 
some of your U. S. O. Scrap Books that we 
all want you to know that we appreciate the 
work that you are doing. Sincerely, 

Signed: Lt. R. B. Pine 
Several members are working diligently on 
Scrap Books. Now that the long winter eve- 
nings are upon us, why not join in with the 
work. 

OND RAFFLE BIG SUCCESS 

To all those members who bought and sold 
tickets for the raffle of four $25 War Bonds, 
many, many thanks. Inez reports a net profit 
of $94.35 for our War Relief Fund. The win- 
ners were Alice Voisinet; Geraldine McGraw 
(Elva's sister) ; Edna Wong who works with 
Helen Power in the U. S. Employment Office; 
and Ann Brogden, assistant to Major McCann 
in the Salvation Army. It was fun. Maybe 
should have another one some time! 
Your president and board are deeply concerned 



about the fact that more of you do not attend 
the club luncheons. Grace Morton is arranging 
top programs for you; Jennie Selleck spends 
hours shopping and preparing delectable sand- 
wich fillings to tickle the palate; Elsie Wood 
makes a new kind of salad for each luncheon 
and they're certainely delicious; Delia Johnston 
makes the best coffee in Oakland and you can 
have all you want. So please put club lunch- 
eons on your calendar as a MUST. Oh yes, 
and remember to attend all the other meetings, 
too! 

Dear Pal: 

You really are a wonderful pal. Cards, lovely 
handkerchiefs at Easter, and now the most at- 
tractive salt and pepper shakers for my birth- 
day. I am looking forward to knowing who 
you are. 

Oramae. 
Dear Pal: 

My sincere thanks for the lovely surprise. You 
are the best pal ever. 

Freda. 

HOUSE OF TOMORROW 

How'll you tell it's a house at all 
When unbreakable window meets random ball, 
When dust won't gather and din's controlled 
And the attic's not hot or the basement cold 
And the whole thing packs in a carrying case 
If you want to move to another place? 
Be it ever so humble will this be home — 
This un-wear-out-able plastic and chrome? 

Lucretia Penny.

:lub notes 

Mary Ada Boyd is retiring. We wish her many 
happy days as a lady of leisure. 

Winifred Brighrman and Marguerite Muir have 
bought a new home, thanks to Alice Voisinet 
who found one for them. 

Sincere thanks go to Jane Patterson for her gen- 
erous Christmas gift of cash, given to the Club 
to be used as desired. 

Major Ruth B. McCann has received a very fine 
promotion. She will do considerable traveling 
for the Salvation Army, and should have some 
interesting stories to tell us when she returns to 
her home Club. Congratulations, Ruth. 

Please sign the card enclosed with this Herald, 
and return it to Inez Miller promptly. If you 
want a pal and sign for one, play fair with her — 
it does not take much to make your secret pal 
happy. A card now and then does wonders for 
one's morale, and will make you happier, too. 
Fortunately, our members are about 99% good 
pals, but we have had a few deeply disappointed 
pals who did not get one word during the whole 
year. It seems a little thing, but life is made up 
of little things .... 

The Christmas party held in our Club rooms was 
an outstanding success. You never saw nor 
tasted such delectable sandwiches, cookies and 
cake, all made by Jennie Selleck and Elsie Wood. 
Santa Claus (Elsie Beaumont) with his big pack 
of gifts received a big hand after the very fine 
program of song and story. Let's do it again ! 



Dear My Gals: 

Many, many thanks to you all for the beautiful 
cards with their sweet messages that came to me at 
Christmas time. They meant more to me than any 
words can ever express, and to think that I have the 
honor of being President of such a wonderful group 
of women is almost more than I can realize. 

The happiest of New Years to each and every 
one of you.

CLUB NOTES 

MEMORIAM 

Willa A. Prather in Oakland, a member of our 
Club, passed away on February 18, 1944. 
One of our former Club members, Adele Walt- 
ers has been living in the middle west since 
she left Oakland. Mary Campbell recently re- 
ceived the sad news of Miss Walters' death in 
the early part of the year. 

N LETTERS 
To Helen: 

1 am stopping at the Tulare Hotel for a few 
days. Last Thursday I had had a light dinner 
and was sitting in the Lobby. I noticed a num- 
ber of women gathering and discovered it was 
the B. P. W. Club. So 1 found myself having 
another dinner, and a very pleasant evening. I 
hope before long I can be in Oakland. 

Sincerely, R. B. McCann. 

Olive Cathcart wishes to thank all her friends 
for the cheerful and beautiful greetings she has 
received since her illness. She expects to be 
back home soon, as good as new. We are all 
bappy to hear such good news. 



NOTES 
Dearest Pal: 

Thanks loads and loads for the lovely "Valen- 
tine handkerchief." It is so exquisite I hesitate 
to use it, and I shall cherish it carefully. 

Marguerite Muir. 



Dear Pal: 

My sincere thanks for the lovely surprise on 
Valentine's day. I am looking forward to know- 
ing who you are. 

Anne Fouts. 

Dear Pal: 

I want to thank you for the thoughtful VaLn- 
tine greeting, which 1 am enjoying very much. 
Neil Wishart. 

NEW MEMBERS 

Mrs. Olive Miller, Field Assistant, Farm 

Labor Board. 
Margaret E. Niedt, transferred from Seattle. 
Ann M. Pare, War Man Power Commission. 

CLUB NOTES 

Ruby Raymond has left us for a while. She is 
going to live in Dos Palos, California, and 
take care of her grandson. 

Notice to those who have not attended oftr Club 
luncheon meetings: 

You do not know what you are missing! The 
hot, well balanced meals are superlative, and 
a real treat for those of us who have to eat 
away from home, as it is practically the same 
as home-cooked food. And the programs have 
been very fine and well worth any one's time 
and effort. 

A. Booster.

Dear "A Secret Pal" 

Loads of thanks for St. Pat plant that grows 
so beautifully in my office. It was surely a 
great surprise and thrill to receive it. 

Helen Augsburg 

Miss May Schuler has been pronounced as fit 
and well. This is good news, and makes us all 
rejoice with May. 

Dr. Ella McGilvery wants to thank the Club 
members for all the lovely flowers and cheerful 
cards which she received during her recent ill- 
ness. It all helped her morale wonderfully. 
She is now able to walk a block or two each 
day, and hopes to be able to attend some of die 
Club meetings soon. 

Our member, Neva Broderick has had a most 
unfortunate accident, but at least is up now 
and able to get out a bit. She reports however, 
that she still has not regained the sight of one 
eye, and maybe never will. We're all pulling 
for you, Neva, and looking forward to seeing 
you at the Installation Luncheon.

To Eunice — 

The club members, officers and the Board of Di-

the beautiful and impressive Installation ceremony 
at which you, as Installing Officer, presided with so 
much grace and charm. The flowers and sentiment

At our December meeting a suggestion was 
made for adding to our war service fund by a 
very simple method. Mrs. Marcella Graham 
offers to serve as your Magazine Secretary, for- 
warding subscriptions or renewals to any mag- 
azine and devote the commission resulting, to 
our club fund. How about it, friends? 

Also, Mrs. Graham asks, have you by any chance 
any white Haviland dishes, Ransome pattern, in 
your home, which you can spare? Her daugh- 
ter, Alice Perry, would be glad to purchase 
such pieces, to add to her dinner set.

gifts I received on my birthday. 

Elsie Beaumont 



At our December meeting a suggestion was 
made for adding to our war service fund by a 
very simple method. Mrs. Marcella Graham 
offers to serve as your Magazine Secretary, for- 
warding subscriptions or renewals to any mag- 
azine and devote the commission resulting, to 
our club fund. How about it, friends? 

Also, Mrs. Graham asks, have you by any chance 
any white Haviland dishes, Ransome pattern, in 
your home, which you can spare? Her daugh- 
ter, Alice Perry, would be glad to purchase 
such pieces, to add to her dinner set.

For the Valentine, Easter and birthday gifts my 
most sincere thanks. Each gift has its own

a million." Winifred Brightman

Mary Barrick and Lily Budde 



Mary Barrick, President, Lily Budde, Emma 
Foss, and Marjorie Kroh attended the Legislative 
Conference held at Salinas on September 9, 
1945. 

Mary Barrick is now working for Warren Olney 
III, former Captain in the Marine Air Corps, 
who has opened offices for general practice of 
the Law at Suite 420, Standard Oil Building, 
225 Bush Street, San Francisco 20, California; 
Telephone GArfield 1773. 

Mrs. Scott Rountree, Oakland Chapter American 
Red Cross Production Corps Chairman, tells us 
to stand by and keep the good work going, and 
that it is necessary to carry on Red Cross Sewing 
for the following reasons: 

1. It is to the best interest to the world at large. 

2. Articles will be needed very badly for the 
next two years, such as lots of slippers, as 
the boys love them, and wash rags. 

3. The. Japanese took all materials of the na- 
tives. 

4. Cotton garments will be made later on. 

Our club has been invited by the Business and 
Professional Women's Club of Berkeley to at- 
tend a tea on Sunday, October 7, 1945, from 
3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Town and Gown Club,

CLUB NOTES 

Maude F. Heins and her husband have gone 
East for a few weeks vacation. 
Ruth B. McCann is returning to civilian life 
again. Her address is P. O. Box 106, Cazadero, 
California. 

We wish to express our deepest sympathy to 
Elfrieda Steindorff on the passing away of her 
mother. 

Very soon all members will receive a card to 611 
out for the new Roster. Please fill out promptly 
and return. 

A very useful and worthy project being under- 
taken by this Club is the purchase of two 
special wheel chairs for amputee patients at 
hospitals. 

The boys to whom these chairs are to be given 
are practically all between the ages of 18 and 
24. Although they are learning to use artificial 
limbs they are only able to use them for a few 
hours at a time. The chairs make the injured men 
almost entirely independent, as though they were 



irning to normal living once more. They 

ble them to go home on furlough or leave, 

ch to the boys is just about the most won- 

ful thing that could happen. The chairs can 

folded and used on trains, automobiles and 

;s. 

« price of these chairs is $66.62 apiece. 

! Business and Professional Women's Club 
3akland has contributed to the Oakland Area 
r Chest, and also to the Veteran Hospitals' 
istmas Committee. The latter group, which 
community enterprise, arranges and presents 
entire Christmas program at our five local 
eran and Service Hospitals. Each hospital 
be presented with a beautiful scroll listing 
names of all organizations and groups con- 
uting to the fund. 

wish to thank Marcella B. Graham for the 
.00 check, to be devoted to the fund for the 
ling of Chinese nurses. This check repre- 
:s commissions on magazine subscriptions, 
:ed by her for friends and members of the club. 

states it is not too early to place orders for 
;azines as Christmas gifts, as the paper shorr- 

restricts the number of new subscriptions 
ch can be accepted. Anyone desiring to 
icribe to magazines, get in touch with Mar- 
i. 

'a Brodrick spent a few weeks at Mills Col- 

this last summer, after which she had a 

• enjoyable vacation at Echo Lake and Calis- 

nbers will find a card inserted with the 
aid this time, which is to be filled out and 
rned to the National Federation of Business 
Professional Women's Club, Inc., 1819 
adway, New York 23, New York. Those 
ibers who filled out cards last year will find 
;xtra slip of paper to be filled out this year 
the Master Files. As there were only 33 
i filled out the cards last year, how about a 



100% turnout this year?

PEACE 

There is no rest or perfect peace 
Upon these rolling waves of life; 
Until the storms that made them cease, 
Until the end of human strife. 

And then a smiling peaceful face 
Transforms the furrowed face of care, 
And peace now finds a resting place, 
No longer swept by waves of care. 

Joy fills the heart of everyone, 
Now looking in this peaceful face; 
That this world's war at last is done 
And peace has found her resting place.

number will be BErkeley 4465. 

Those who did not attend our luncheon held 
on January 17, 1946, at the Leamington Hotel, 
missed a very interesting talk given by Mr. 
Berry, Superintendent and Personnel Manager 
of Walton N. Moore Dry Goods Co., Inc. The 
highlight of the program was when he drew the 
names of three club members and presented each 
with a pair of Nylons. The lucky members 
were Grace Lyon, Ramona Leslie and Marjorie 
Kroh. We wish to thank Ann Fouts for having 
secured such an entertaining speaker.

mentarian of the Bay District; Mr. B. Vasey, 
Private Secretary to Governor Warren, and Mr. 
C. Towne, Western Regional Director of the

revealing your identity. 

We wish to extend our thanks to the Quota 
Club of Oakland for inviting our President and 
members to join in celebrating their Ninth 
Birthday, held at the Leamington Hotel on Feb- 
ruary 20, 1946. They presented a most in- 
teresting program, and Mrs. Gerald Whitaker, 
Director of the Handicapped and Crippled Chil- 
dren's Guild, gave a marvelous talk. 



.1 



Dear Elsie: 

All the Club members wish to extend their 
sincere thanks to you for the splendid job you 
did in cleaning up the Club Room. It surely 
was wonderful of you. 

MEMORIAM 

The Club Members sympathize with Mrs. Elsie 
Wood in the loss of her brother. 



The other day we bade adieu, the last adieu, to 
a Charter Member of our Club, Bird M. Wilson, 
who had rounded out a life rich in accomplish- 
ment in behalf of women, especially women in 
business and the professions. 
One of the group of young women to pioneer 
in the occupation of stenography, she paved the 
way for the many who came after, when in the 
eighties, she opened the first public stenographic 
office in San Francisco. 

As the clientele was largely that of the law, it 
naturally followed that Miss Wilson should ob- 
tain a law degree from the University of Cali- 
fornia Law School and be the first woman at- 
torney admitted to practice in the Federal Courts 
in California. 

Going to the new mining towns of Nevada to 
practice law, her abilities and steadfast reli- 
ability were recognized by her selection for the 
office of Justice of the Peace. 
On the business side, Miss Wilson was the first 
woman to become a member of the San Fran- 
cisco Stock Exchange. 

For nearly twenty years, and until her retire- 
ment five years ago, she served as an Alameda 
County Court Reporter, in the court of the late 
Superior Judge E. C. Robinson. 
From the wealth of this background, through 
the near quarter of a century of its existence, 
the Business and Professional Women's Club 
has been the recipient of her valued counsel 
and service; as an early member of the Board 



of Officers, as Secretary of the Club House 
Board during its existence, as Secretarv-Treas- 
urer of the Educational Loan Fund — and as Ed- 
itor, the Herald was for a number of years the 
product of her pen. Her contribution to the 
growth of the Club was inestimable. 
Rich will be the memory of those who enjoyed 
an association with this charmingly capable wom- 
an, Bird M. Wilson.

MANY THANKS TO THE RED CROSS SEWING 
GROUP FOR THEIR FINE WORK DURING 
THE PAST YEAR 

The club extends many thanks to Dora Cooley 
and her group for the splendid work they have done. 
Between six and seven members attended each meet- 
ing totaling 682 hours. With such a small group 
we are proud to say they have made the following: 
10 bathrobes, 5 pajamas, 110 slippers, 176 bags and 
50 baby jackets. At a meeting held by the Red 
Cross Sewing Group it was decided to discontinue 
their meetings until September and at that time 
start anew. 

The club has been invited to attend [lie Instal- 
lation of Officers for the Soroptimist Club of Oak- 
land, Leamington Hotel, Monday, June 10th, 8:00 
p. m., $3.00. Reservations must be in by Friday, 
June 8th. If anyone wishes to attend please get in 
touch with your president, Marjorie Kroh. 

Hazel Steen is vacationing with her cousin at 
Forest Hill Hotel in Pacific Grove. 

Katherine Sweeney, who is now in New York 
City, expects to return to Oakland around the 10th. 
At the board meeting May 1st it was voted to 
have dues from all Club members payable in June 
and December respectively, so that National dues 
could be forwarded in July and January, as pro- 
vided by National regulations. Accordingly, all 
members have been billed as of June 1, regardless 
of when they last paid. For those whose payment 
would not ordinarily come due in June, the amount 
has been pro-rated since date of last payment. 
Therefore, if each member will pay in June the 
amount indicated on her bill, no further statement 
will be sent until December. 



The California Federation of Business and Pro-

Sir!

Dr. Allen, a native daughter of the State of 
Idaho, and a graduate of the U. C. Medical School, 
has had one of the most outstanding experiences of 
any American doctor stationed in the Orient at the 
outbreak of hostilities. The talk as outlined by the 
doctor will be in four parts. First, outlining the 
initial sweep of the enemy over the Philippines and 
the capture and imprisonment of all the Americans, 
men, women and children. Second, life in a Jap 
civilian prison camp. Third, medicine and surgery 
under unbelievable conditions. Fourth, humorous 
highlights of the whole affair and the great thrill 
u the sight of the first American liberators. 

Behind the charming exterior of Dr. Allen is a 
little known story of her personal courage and en- 
durance. Her husband, Lieutenant Colonel Allen, 
failed to survive his capture; he died shortly after- 
wards but the doctor carried on, and on a day shortly 
hereafter, having just completed her twentieth case 
or the day, she herself was delivered of her second 
ion. 

All in all, the program is a most enthralling 
Jne, and well worth a one hundred per cent attend- 
mce by the members. 

-JOTES ON DINNER MEETING 

This will be an outstanding meeting. We have 
nvited other doctors to attend as they are interested 
n hearing this speaker. Why not bring a prospec- 
ive member to this meeting. It will be a good 
ime to make a good impression. Husbands and 
riends (male) are also invited. Soroptimist Club 
Members will be invited. Formal or informal. Din- 
ger $2.58. 



MANY THANKS TO THE RED CROSS SEWING 
GROUP FOR THEIR FINE WORK DURING 
THE PAST YEAR 

The club extends many thanks to Dora Cooley 
and her group for the splendid work they have done. 
Between six and seven members attended each meet- 
ing totaling 682 hours. With such a small group 
we are proud to say they have made the following: 
10 bathrobes, 5 pajamas, 110 slippers, 176 bags and 
50 baby jackets. At a meeting held by die Red 
Cross Sewing Group it was decided to discontinue 
their meetings until September and at that time 
start anew. 

The club has been invited to attend the Instal- 
lation of Officers for the Soroptimist Club of Oak- 
land, Leamington Hotel, Monday, June 10th, 8:00 
p. m., $3.00. Reservations must be in by Friday, 
June 8th. If anyone wishes to attend please get in 
touch with your president, Marjorie Kroh. 

Hazel Steen is vacationing with her cousin at 
Forest Hill Hotel in Pacific Grove. 

Katherine Sweeney, who is now in New York 
City, expects to return to Oakland around the 10th. 
At the board meeting May 1st it was voted to 
have dues from all Club members payable in June 
and December respectively, so that National dues 
could be forwarded in July and January, as pro- 
vided by National regulations. Accordingly, all 
members have been billed as of June 1, regardless 
of when they last paid. For those whose payment 
would not ordinarily come due in June, the amount 
has been pro-rated since date of last payment. 
Therefore, if each member will pay in June the 
amount indicated on her bill, no further statement 
will be sent until December. 



The California Federation of Business and Pro- 
fessional Women's Clubs held its first convention 
since the war in the Redwood Empire District at

ressed that we could all have a happier life if we 
anneJ our future according to the vocations that 
e are best suited to. She asked that our club con- 
der sponsoring a counselling service to help those 
ho are just starting to work and are not sure what 
.ey are best qualified to do or what they want to 
At the end of her talk she read the following 
>em: 



rust in your dreams, but attain them by doing 

arry your standard right on to its goal, 

nd all through the way, the joy of pursuing 

fill strengthen and gladden the depths of your soul. 

rust in your dreams and keep them before you, 

ittle by little you'll make them come true, 

)r battles were won and victory rewarded 

o brave, eager hearts of dreamers like you.

CLUB NOTES 

The following note was received from Edith Bige- 
low, Elva McGraw's sister: "Elva wants me to let 
you know how much she has appreciated your 
thoughtfulness to her since she has been ill. The 
flowers and notes and telephone calls sent by indi- 
vidual members and the plant by the club have all 
added their bits of cheer to the sick room. Elva is 
improving daily and is gradually getting the use of 
her arm. She hopes soon to be able to express her 
own 'thank you'." 

Even though Elva is feeling better she still would 
appreciate hearing from you. 

Grace Morton, whose aunt recently passed away, 
wishes to thank the club members for their expres- 
sion of sympathy in the sending of flowers. 

Alice Burnell, Honorary Member, has moved from 
>akland and is now living with her sister and 
brother-in-law at 501 Center St., Rock Springs, Wyo. 
Marcella Graham just received a letter from Alice 
and she says she is very happy in her new home, but 
like all who have lived in California — still thinks it 
is the best state. 

The club wishes to extend congratulations to our 
member, May Schuler, on her marriage to Mr. Leon- 
ard Van Inwagen. The wedding took place in the 
rectory of Our Lady of Lourdes' parish on Lake- 
shore Avenue Saturday, August 10. Their honey- 
moon was spent on the Monterey Peninsula. New 
home of the newlyweds is at 1250 Excelsior Ave. 

Mary Ada Boyd is home from her eastern trip and 
is very glad to be back in California. 



Grace Lyon, who has been having difficulty with 
her eyes, is now better, but will still have to be 
very careful. 

At our last breakfast Miss R. Stella Knapp, from 
the Pasadena Business and Professional Women's 
Club, was a visitor and we were happy to have Mrs. 
Ray Hatton, a member from the state of Washington 
as a guest at our book review.

within the last month are Josephine Holly at Lucerne 
Valley in the desert, Ora Mae Griggs at Boulder 
Creek, Mary Barrick at Carmel, and Anna Lignell at

ference of the Bay District held at the Old Hearst

Bunce, Nelle Lennon, Katherine McLeod, Anna Lig- 
nell, Anga Bjornson and Nevart Caldow. Everyone

Swasey, Second Vice President; Ivy Grace, President 
of the Los Angeles District and Ethel Johnstone,

like all who have lived in California — still thinks it 
is the best state. 

The club wishes to extend congratulations to our 
member, May Schuler, on her marriage to Mr. Leon- 
ard Van Inwagen. The wedding took place in the 
rectory of Our Lady of Lourdes' parish on Lake- 
shore Avenue Saturday, August 10. Their honey- 
moon was spent on the Monterey Peninsula. New 
home of the newlyweds is at 1250 Excelsior Ave. 

Mary Ada Boyd is home from her eastern trip and 
is very glad to be back in California. 



Grace Lyon, who has been having difficulty with 
her eyes, is now better, but will still have to be 
very careful. 

At our last breakfast Miss R. Stella Knapp, from 
the Pasadena Business and Professional \\ 
Club, was a visitor and we were happy to have Mrs. 
Ray Hatton, a member from the state of Washington 
as a guest at our book review. 

Those who have spent their vacations out of town 
within the last month are Josephine Holly at Lucerne 
Valley in the desert, Ora Mae Griggs ai Boulder 
Creek, Mary Barrick at Carmel, and Anna Lignell at 
Los Angeles. 

Those from Oakland who attended the Fall Con- 
ference of the Bay District held at the Old Hearst 
Ranch, were Marjorie Kroh, Lily Budde, Mary 
Barrick, Inez Miller, Ann Fouts, Olive Miller, Anna 
Bunce, Nelle Lennon, Katherine McLeod, Anna Lig- 
nell, Anga Bjornson and Nevart Caldow. Everyone 
had a grand time and were pleased to see and hi t] 
from the following State officers, Lily Hawkinson, 
President; Laura Lorraine, First Vice Presideni Lelfl 
Swasey, Second Vice President; Ivy Grace, President 
of the Los Angeles District and Ethel Johnstone, 
Junior Past President. At the conference we learned 
that Ethel has been appointed National Education 
Chairman, which we think is quite an honor for the 
California Federation of Business and Professional 
Women's Club.

vites us to a Card Party at the St. Francis Hotel in 
the Colonial Room. $1.00 plus tax. At 1:30 p.m.

MARGARET L. CHALMERS 

Thirty-two years is a long period of professional 
vice, but in retrospect it seems little time. Such 
s th; record of Margaret L. Chalmers, Regis- 
ed Nurse with Drs. Strietmann and MacLean, and 

I McCleeve, a more recent associate with that of- 

i 
I 

For more than twenty-five of those years, Mar- 
ret Chalmers answered roll call as a Charter 
.-rnber of our Club — and in the early days of its 
indation laying, was most active with a gracious 
Ipfulness, contributing much to the spirit of the 
jb we enjoy today. 

On November 11, 1946| Margaret gave response 
the Greater Roll Call, but in her absence from our 
therings the spirit of good fellowship, in which 
; had a part, will serve as a reminder of the 
ys of her activities in the affairs of the Club. 

To our members, her sisters, Susanne M. Chalmers 
1 Agnes Jackson, and their families, the Club ex- 
os its sympathy for a loss, in which we too, feel 
have a share. 

Margaret's sisters wish the Club members to know 
t their kind expression of sympathy is deeply 
feci.-.ted and gratefully acknowledged.

Marie Anderson and her husband, owners of the

At our book review on February 20, Mrs. R.

Eunice Nunez's husband underwent a very serious

Francisco, and our last report was that he is slowly 
regaining his health. 

The Oakland Inter-Service Club Council meeting 
was held February 11, 1947, at the Athens Club. 
Several interesting subjects were discussed. One 
was, should each club study the same community 
•nblem, or if each club should study a different 
problem. There are two clubs in the council, who 
at present are studying important community mat- 
ters. One club is studying the proposed "New City 
Charter," and the other club has made a thorough 
research of "Juvenile Delinquency." Several City 
Officials are to be guests at the next meeting of the 
council, March 11, 1947. At this time the council 
will be prepared to ask questions as to what the 
clubs can do to help prevent the present Juvenile 
Delinquency that prevails in the city of Oakland. 

Helen O'Neil, Etta Herman and Delia Sherman 
have resigned, because their work has demanded so 
much of their time, that they have been unable to 
participate in the club activities. 

Please remove from your Roster the following 
listed names: Muriel Anderson, Ruth Hemple, Ann 
Pare, Florence Randall and Louise Schmidts. 

We are happy to hear that Mary Barrick's hus- 
band, who was confined to the Livermore Hospital, 



has now returned home, and expects to return to 
work soon.

Remember NATIONAL GIRLS WEEK — March

TO ALL MEMBERS, INFORMATION, PLEASE ! 
The question has been raised as to what disposition 
shall be made of our Club furnishings, etc., whether

storage is $7.00 per month.) 

A temporary committee on "Club property" has 
been appointed, consisting of Dora Cooley, Olive 
Miller and Freda Smith Snyder. It is considered 
most important that all members be given an op- 
portunity to pass upon the questions: 

Shall we sell the property? Or any part of it? 
If so, how to proceed? 

Most of the members are familiar with the articles, 
all of which were in our Franklin Street Club Rooms. 
They may be interested in buying some of them if 
it is decided to sell them. 

This matter will be discussed at our "For Mem- 
bers Only Meeting" on February 5th. Please be 
present with ideas. Thank you.

IMPORTANT 

The subject of the disposal of our Club property, 
office equipment, furniture and furnishings, which 
was mentioned in the last Herald and discussed at 
the last Members' Meeting, will be taken up at the 
March 4 meeting to be acted upon by the members 
of the club. The Committee will make its report 
at that time. If everyone will give the matter some 
thought in the meantime, it should take only a short 
time to decide whether the property is to remain in 
storage or some other disposition made of it. Bright 
ideas will be most helpful.

THANK YOU NOTES 

This is to convey my sincere thanks to my Secret 
Pal for her beautifully expressed New Year's Greet-

make my birthday such a happy one. Thanks again 
to all of you. Most sincerely, Nell Wishart. 

Margueritte Muir says thank you so very much for 
the lovely birthday cards and telephone calls. Spe- 
cial mention to "the Whistler" whoever you are — 
that was a thrill. 

Dear Secret Pal: Your Valentine gift was very 
nice. How to let you know is quite a puzzle. Thank 
you so much. Just little things are sufficient. The 
stationery was very appropriate. Lota Mitcheltree.

PERSONALITY 

Every community is a tumbler full of fire-flies in 
the sense that every human personality gives off a 
certain glow. The way a man looks in life; whether 
he is friendly or surly, cheerful or morose, whether 
he is optimistic or despondent; and his sense of 
values and sanctions, his ambitions and restraints, 
his freedom and his fear — all of these contribute to 
his glow, and to the collective glow of his com- 
munity.

NEWS ITEMS 

Doris Byrns Graves was in the Providence Hos- 
pital for a minor and major operation the latter part 
of September. We are hoping for a speedy recovery 
for Doris so she can be back with us again soon. 

Mary Barrick went to the Providence Hospital for 
a major and minor operation the last part of Sep- 
tember. We are hoping for a speedy recovery for 
her. A note from Mary said: "I have been trying 
my best to get back to Club but seems that something 
is always happening. Harry came back from Liver- 
more the last part of June. Getting my work caught 
up I was just about ready to get back to Club and 
now to top it off I am going to the hospital for a 
minor, and maybe a major, operation. I want to 
thank everyone for so many nice cards and gifts from 
the members — would you change my birthdate on 
your records from August 3rd to August 31st, though 
it was nice having two birthdays. Hope to be seeing 
you soon and I had so wanted to get back into the 
swing. Love, Mary Barrick." 

This is a note that the BPWC received from 
Naomi Schotto, who was going to be a transfer to 
our Club from Pittsburg, Kansas: "I have decided, 
for the present, to return to my former work in 
Kansas. I appreciate, more than I can tell, your 
friendliness and the spirit of welcome of your Club. 
It has clearly shown the broad meaning and spirit of 
our National Federation. With all good wishes to 
you, I am, Sincerely (Signed) Naomi Schotto." 

The members who attended the Bay District Con- 
ference at Asilomar were: Inez Miller, Neva Brod- 
rick, Maude Heins, Lily Budde, Agnes Jackson, 
Hazel Steen, Ethel Pryor, Kathryn McLeod, Clara 
Beach, Iva Havlin, Eunice Nunez, Nevart Caldow, 
Nelle Lennon, Anna Lignell, Olive Miller, Stella 



Erdley, Ethel Bruso, Mary Osborn, Marcella Graham, 
Alice Perry, and Estelle Masonheimer. 

The following letter was received from Dorothy 
Gray of Fremont, Nebraska: "I waited to write this 
letter from Fremont. Surely enjoyed the evening 
with you and the Club members. Thank you. 
Haven't had the opportunity to tell the Club mem- 
bers here. They will be interested to hear about 
your Club. With best wishes for a happy, successful 
year. Signed, Dorothy Gray, 1830 No. D., Fremont, 
Nebraska." 

Margaret Garvey is on a month's leave of absence 
from her work and a much needed rest. 

Katherine McLeod took a two weeks' vacation in 
Sept. Her cards told us she was having a very 
enjoyable time.

NEWS ITEMS 

Doris Byrns Graves was in the Providence Hos- 
pital for a minor and major operation the latter part 
of September. We are hoping for a speedy recovery 
for Doris so she can be back with us again soon. 

Mary Barrick went to the Providence Hospital for 
a major and minor operation the last part of Sep- 
tember. We are hoping for a speedy recovery for 
her. A note from Mary said: "I have been trying 
my best to get back to Club but seems that something 
is always happening. Hariy came back from Liver- 
more the last part of June. Getting my work caught 
up I was just about ready to get back to Club and 
now to top it off I am going to the hospital for a 
minor, and maybe a major, operation. I want to 
thank everyone for so many nice cards and gifts from 
the members — would you change my birthdate on 
your records from August 3rd to August 31st, though 
it was nice having two birthdays. Hope to be seeing 
you soon and I had so wanted to get back into the 
swing. Love, Mary Barrick." 

This is a note that the BPWC received from 
Naomi Schotto, who was going to be a transfer to 
our Club from Pittsburg, Kansas: "I have decided, 
for the present, to return to my former work in 
Kansas. I appreciate, more than I can tell, your 
friendliness and the spirit of we'eome of your Club. 
It has clearly shown the broad meaning and spirit of 
our National Federation. With all good wishes to 
you, I am, Sincerely (Signed) Naomi Schotto." 

The members who attended the Bay District Con- 
ference at Asilomar were: Inez Miller, Neva Brod- 
rick, Maude Heins, Lily Budde, Agnes Jackson, 
Hazel Steen, Ethel Pryor, Kathryn McLeod, Clara 
Beach, Iva Havlin, Eunice Nunez, Nevart Caldow, 
Nelle Lennon, Anna Lignell, Olive Miller, Stella 



Erdley, Ethel Bruso, Mary Osborn, Marcella Graham, 
Alice Perry, and Estelle Masonheimer. 

The following letter was received from Dorothy 
Gray of Fremont, Nebraska: "I waited to write this 
letter from Fremont. Surely enjoyed the evening 
with you and the Club members. Thank you. 
Haven't had the opportunity to tell the Club mem- 
bers here. They will be interested to hear about 
your Club. With best wishes for a happy, successful 
year. Signed, Dorothy Gray, 1830 No. D., Fremont, 
Nebraska." 

Margaret Garvey is on a month's leave of absence 
from her work and a much needed rest. 

Katherine McLeod took a two weeks' vacation in 
Sept. Her cards told us she was having a very 
enjoyable time.

THOUGHTS FOR THANKSGIVING DAY 

"Our thanks should be as fervent for mercies a 
ceived, as our petitions for mercies sought." Thi 
quotation by C. Simmons perhaps reminds us thf 
successful men and women pray in good times a 
well as bad. Pray because many is the time the 
need more strength than is found within us. Som 
people pray only when they are in a church or ten 
pie, others when they are alone, and others whe 
they look to the sky. But best of all are the prayei 
that are carried in the heart throughout the day 
expressed by hearty regard by one's fellow man; 
pride of a good piece of work well done — in hope 
for better accomplishments in being kind, sincert 
and in giving prompt and courteous service to every 



in yourself to remain gentle of spirit and 
ous; for strength to do one's work and remain 
ble in attitude.

NEWS NOTES 

Ramona Leslie reports that her mother and brother 
.tie improving slowly and hopes to be able to be at 
a meeting soon. Grace Morton tells us that she is 
back on the job after several months of illness and 
hopes to be back to the meetings soon. Ruth Hotch- 
kiss reports that she is OK and that her family ate 



on the mend. Alice Voisinet strained a ligament in 
her leg. Alice is still on the job but the pain keeps 
her from doing as much as she would like to do. 

We miss you when you are not with us and look 
forward to when our members can be with us as 
each one gives us great inspiration and encourage- 
ment. 

A letter from Helen Kling today tells us that 
her mother passed away the latter part of October. 
To Helen and her relatives we extend our deepest 
sympathy. 

THANKS 

Dear Secret Pal and Club Friends: 

Thanks to my Pal for the beautiful chrysanthe- 
mums and stockings you sent me for my birthday. 
You certainly have been a grand Pal and I am

thanks for remembering me with your beautiful 
cards. — Marjorie Kroh.

DEAR CLUB MEMBERS: 

At our last business meeting (October 2) it was 
voted to "establish a fund to be called 'The Per- 
manent Club House Fund' for the purpose of having 
available funds to rent, lease, buy or build desirable 
quarters and, as a beginning balance in such fund to 
transfer all money received from the current sale of 
furniture." 

It seems advisable to augment this fund each year 
without taking money needed for current 
tures. Please be giving this your serious considera- 
tion because your suggestions and recommendations 
for fund raising projects will be welcomed at a 
business meeting, (date to be announced) within the 
next few months.

intercMcd in our various anniversaries that n i» the 
hope of your chairman that you will all respond

will have ascertained your secret pal in time 
her a Valentine's Greeting and thus be off to a pood 
start for the year of 1950. To those who arc actively 
engaged in many business and civic activities, the 
Secret Pal is not so vital. Kit to those who arc less 
active now. the Secret Pal Procedure is invaluable. 
Let us get behind this excellent idea and gr. 
supporr. Of course it is to be borne in mind that 
when you acquire a Secret Pal you also acquire a 
responsibility, but since responsibilities tend to de- 
velop character we should welcome this opportunity.

ISHINE COMMITTEE 

^e wish a speedy recovery to our members who 
ill. 

Jta Micheltree has been ill for the past month, 
is recuperating at the home of her sister, 815 
: Street, Alameda. The phone number is LA 
23. 

ertha McCall has been in the hospital and is 
at home. 

r. Ella McGilvery and Jean Simas also have been 
It is our hope that these members will be back- 
us very soon. 



SECRET PALS 

The time of year to aiquiic Secret Ml hi 
urived, ind it is such a good thing fa 

to know that we have some one who is p. 
interested in our various anniversaries that it is the 
hope of your chairman that you will .ill 
enthusiastically by returning the questionnaire being 
sent to you in the near future. We hope that you 
will have ascertained your secret pal in time to send 
her a Valentine's Greeting and thus be off to 
start for the year of 1950. To those who lie actively 
engaged in many business and civic activities, the 
Secret Pal is not so vital, but to those who are less 
active now. the Secret Pal Procedure is invaluable. 
Let us get behind this excellent idea and give it our 
support. Of course it is to be borne in mind that 
when you acquire a Secret Pal you also acquire a 
responsibility, but since responsibilities tend to de- 
velop character we should welcome this opportunity. 

Doris A. Wood, Pals Chairman.

SORRY 

We are sorry to learn that Hi Haviland has been 
a patient at Mcrritt Hospital for more than six 
weeks and her stay there is still indefinite. It is 
hoped her friends arc remembering her at this time. 

ANY COMPLAINTS? 

It is felt that anyone not receiving attention from 
her Secret Pal should get in touch with the Pal 
Chairman who will endeavor to find the reason for 
the neglect and rectify the cause if possible. 

In my opinion it is not fair for an individual not 
to receive word from her Secret Pal at reasonable 
intervals on the various occasions we all recognize. 
Doris A. Wood, Pal Chairman

SORRY 

We are sorry to leam that Ha Haviland has been 
a patient at Mcrritt Hospital for more than six 
weeks and her stay thete is still indefinite. It is 
hoped her friends arc remembering her at this time. 

ANY COMPLAINTS? 

It is felt that anyone not receiving attention from 
her Secret Pal should get in touch with the Pal 
Chairman who will endeavor to find the reason for 
the neglect and rectify the cause if possible. 

In my opinion it is not fair for an individual not 
to receive word from her Secret Pal at reasonable 
intervals on the various occasions we all recognize. 
Doris A. Wood, Pal Chairman
